environment was dreamed up by computer scientists at the university of illinois, chicago. think of a project room or a war room where you hang up pieces of paipaper and photographs and you tape them to the wall and you see lots of different data at the same time. today all data is stored n in ce computer we wanted electronic walls so you can display information. >> these visualzations can show howdhowdyhow depression ma manie mind. you can get big or shrink down. you get different understanding of the data when you look at it in different sizes and relationships. >> researchers say the applications are seemingly endless. but it' it's at the heart k-2's dimensions. in 2009 nasa funded the endurance research project to study under water environments. they dropped a 6 million-dollar robot into the center of lake bonnie using sonar to collect data from the lake's deepest point. >> we had the robot sending out sonar and what we ended up getting back was 50 million points. university of illinois professor headed up the mission. it's a data set unlike any other in a lake environment. >> that data n

it is today on the internet or pamphlets in the old day, it is two-way conversational environment and people are passing things two and from friends and exchanging information along social networks and that is why it is social networking. this creates a community. that is what a social environment looks like and we have familiar with that on facebook and twitter. we see stuff from people we follow. the difference with mass media is that mass media is one-way and impersonal and talked down broadcast. the radio sits in the corner of the room. it isn't social. it is sitting there and you are not having a conversation with it. and no social networking or personal recommendation involved. we have come to thing of one-way media channels that reach a large audience; newspaper, television and internet. and we come to think this now is a change and we can get news from friends and you don't need to be a newspaper editor to decide what message is going to spread. but this is how things were in the era before the mass media. wuch co-- the period before old media looks very familiar. it is social from t

data lately. it should be that, no, good data. because we are in a good news is bad news environment. this is good news moves interest rates higher. whether the fed likes it or not! remember, the fed wants rates down as more jobs can be created. but at a certain point, you have to ask, aren't more jobs being created? the fed stops trying to keep interest rates down or stops being able to. it's a fore gone conclusion the whole stock market will decline regardless of what the fed says or does. that's been the case before even as the last late run-up t.st going to be the case again. i'm not debating that. there are tons of reasons why stocks could. we know risk-free bonds that generate returns of 3% on the ten-year treasury and 4% on the 30-year treasury. a prediction of where we'll go on the employment number. will, indeed, be killer competition for dividend stocks with high yields. we know this because even the run from 1.8 to 2.8 on the treasury crushed two of the highest yielding groups out there. they have not been able to withstand the higher rate. they could be canaries in the co

's in an environment where israel as well as many u s lawmakers don't think that iraq should develop nuclear technology at all. the obama administration had to gauge the diplomatic acrobatics to both acknowledge he runs right to peaceful nuclear energy and not acknowledge it at the same time. we approach these negotiations with a basic understanding. iran like any nation should be able to access peaceful nuclear energy. but because of its record of violating its obligations. iran must accept strict limitations on its nuclear programs that make it impossible to develop a nuclear weapon. the scope and role of iran's enrichment as is set forth in the language within this document says that iran's peaceful nuclear program is subject to a negotiation and to mutual agreement. despite the officials attempts to appease the hawks with punches are flying here looks like we tacitly agreed that they will be enriching for commercial purposes down the road so i think you gonna say on capitol hill again a bipartisan effort to try to make sure that this is not the falling rain. another set of marco rubio call that dea

[ male announcer ] today, men with low t have androgel 1.62% testosterone gel. the #1 prescribed topical testosterone replacement therapy increases testosterone when used daily. women and children should avoid contact with application sites. discontinue androgel and call your doctor if you see unexpected signs of early puberty in a child, or signs in a woman, which may include changes in body hair or a large increase in acne, possibly due to accidental exposure. men with breast cancer or who have or might have prostate cancer, and women who are or may become pregnant or are breast-feeding, should not use androgel. serious side effects include worsening of an enlarged prostate, possible increased risk of prostate cancer, lower sperm count, swelling of ankles, feet, or body

.s.-china cooperation on the environment is critical to reducing greenhouse gas emissions, carbon pollution, for our country and the world. we are particularly excited to have her here. this is the first time administrator mccarthy has spoken here at cap, and we are excited to have her here. president obama released the climate action plan. we at cap applaud the effort and recognize its critical goals. it is critical for the u.s. and the world that we embark on this effort to reduce greenhouse gas emissions to prepare the united states for the impacts of climate change, and to lead this international effort to combat climate change. we believe these efforts will ensure the u.s. grows economically, will create jobs, and will also meet the important challenge of reducing -- reduction in greenhouse gas admissions by 17% by 2020. we hope this event today highlights the importance of china as a key partner. combating global climate change is not something that the u.s. should tackle on its own. that is why we are excited about this u.s.-china engagement. we have been able to see firsthand that the epa is
